Lundy list of Terrestrial Molluscs

While slugs are abundant in damp weather, which is not uncommon on Lundy, they are very under recorded. Similarly whilst the large Garden and Brown-lipped Snails can be easily found records are rarely seen in the log book.  The remaining snails are quite small and can only usually be found by diligent stone turning or wall inspection.
